@DonR , StarZ is available as a $5.99/mo add-on to Crave. See https://www.crave.ca/subscribe. Scroll down to see the add-ons.

@57 , I had that package and found out that I could cancel the magazine subscription and get the bill reduced by $2/mo.

movieentertainment.ca belonged to Astral Media. It looks like nobody at Bell could be bothered to renew it or maintain the site. Typical Bell, buy up the competition then gut services and raise prices.

I know, but I am not going to spend extra $5.99, just to see a few episodes of Counterpart. And by the way, Counterpart is still available...I just figured it out. Works fine on my Amazon Fire TV Stick, but for some reason my Apple TV is giving me that message about having to subscribe to StarZ. Everything else from Crave works fine on Apple TV...go figure.

The On-Air schedule of the Crave.ca site has been enhanced to include the schedules for Starz 1 and 2. The "print schedule" function now loads the March PDF including Crave 1-4, HBO 1 & 2 and Starz 1 & 2.

Starz announced that The Spanish Princess will premiere Sunday, May 5 in the U.S. (Source) The limited series is a followup to The White Queen and The White Princess, which were originally shown by Super Channel in Canada and are now available on Starz Canada. It's not clear if Super Channel will get first-run rights as a result of their previous contract, or if the series will go directly to Starz Canada since Lionsgate is the international distributor.

Thanks for the reminder. I hope it's still in the basic Crave subscription.

The March schedule says that Billions is part of "SHOWTIME Programming (Available on Crave)." Anything on the schedule that says "Available on Crave" is included in the basic price.

Programming in the sections of the schedule that say "Available on Crave + Movies + HBO" or "STARZ Series and Films (Available as part of the STARZ add-on to Crave)" require the corresponding subscription.

DonR it is on Crave1, not Crave HBO or Crave Starz. So that should be what you call Basic. Good luck!

Showtime programming is on the Crave Movie channels so a Crave + Movies + HBO subscription is likely required for the new season. Don't know about other seasons.

@ExDilbert The press release in post 2 clearly states which programming requires Crave + Movies + HBO. Showtime programs are included in the basic Crave streaming subscription.

Thanks for the clarification. I find it odd that a Crave Movies subscription is required for Showtime content on a BDU but not on Crave streaming. That's more value for streaming subscribers and yet another reason to cut the cord.

If you have a basic Crave $10 subscription (or even an expired one), the new app lets you see all the content and tells you which add-on a program or season is in when you click on it. Black Sails is a good example. Season 1 in Crave, seasons 2-4 in Starz add on.

@andyk that's a good point, but you don't need an account to browse through the web interface. If you aren't logged in and it just says you need to subscribe, than the program is included in the basic Crave streaming subscription.

Here's the link for Power.

More examples:
True Detective "Season 3 requires a Movies + HBO subscription" (Link)
Game of Thrones "Season 7 requires a Movies + HBO subscription" (Link)
